Ruben Jaghinyan, President of the Council of Public TV and Radio Company and the initiator of the event, assured that the tradition would continue and the names of other devotees would find their place in the Walk of Fame.
“Armenian radio and TV have developed thanks to those people. They serve an example to the younger generation and all those working in the sphere,” Ruben Jaghinyan said in his opening remarks.
“These people have created the 90 and 60 years of history of Armenian radio and television with their devotion. For those, who’re alive it’s a great responsibility,” said Armen Amiryan, Member of the Council of Public TV and Radio Company and a long-time director of the Public Radio of Armenia.
“I’m deeply confident that under the current conditions of development of TV and radio, it’s important to build upon the old traditions. These plaques are the cuneiform tablets that shape the solid basis, which the future of Armenian television and radio will be built upon,” he added.
